$590,000 Nursing Home Neglect Settlement
Nursing Home Neglect That Led To Death
As a result of carotid artery and quadruple cardiac by-pass surgeries, this woman required a tracheostomy to assist with her breathing. Then after spending considerable time in the hospital, she was transferred to a well-known nursing home to care for her needs and tend to the special requirements of a tracheostomy patient.
But unfortunately, the trust that her family placed in this nursing home was misplaced as time and time again her children saw evidence of neglect when they visited. Failure to properly and promptly care for their mother’s needs led to dehydration, pneumonia and sepsis, eventually contributing to her untimely wrongful death. Her children were left searching for answers and hired our attorneys to help. After lengthy negotiations with representatives for the nursing home, a fair and just settlement in excess of $590,000.00 was reached on behalf of her appreciative family.
